People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) does not shy away from attention grabbing news stories when it comes to furthering their cause of animalrights. As reported by the Akron Beacon Journal, the organization’s president, Ingrid E. Newkirk, recently wrote a letter to the real estate agent who listed infamous serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer’s childhood home for sale. In the correspondence to agent Richard Lubinski, Newkirk said that PETA would like to turn the Ohio house into a vegan restaurant and “respond to the past with something positive.”
The home, now listed for $295,000, was the location of Dahmer’s first murder in 1978. He killed, dismembered, and scattered the remains of Steven M. Hicks around the 1.5-acre property. Dahmer would later take the lives of 16 more victims. Newkirk wrote in her letter, “Dahmer’s old house gives us a way to evoke sympathy for these victims and to suggest that a life-affirming diet can change everything.” It is unclear what Ms. Newkirk meant by ‘everything.’
Anyone with a lick of sense knows that a "Dahmer's restaurant" would need to be a "you grill it" steakhouse...

Not necessarily only residential. It's not uncommon to have a mixed zone, especially if the house is grandfathered and the area has changed from residential to a low impact business zone.
But I don't doubt that this is some sort of publicity stunt for them. I find it to be very twisted to even suggest it.
